About the Reuse Centre

What is the Reuse Centre? We are a facility that accepts certain items and makes them available to individuals and organizations for reuse. Our Centre is located at 6835 83 Street (just off Argyll Road) and we are open Tuesday to Saturday. For our exact hours of operation, prices, workshop details, volunteer opportunities and contact information, please check out our website at www.edmonton.ca/reusecentre.

As a compulsive snapshot taker and "useful things" saver, I look forward to sharing with you photos of interesting Reuse Centre finds along with my misadventures of making things with and repurposing them. I'm incredibly inspired by the people who creatively reuse in our community -- I hope to share their stories with you.

Nichole - Volunteer:

Hello everyone!  My name is Nichole, and I'm having so much fun volunteering with the Reuse Centre.  I'm a little new to this wonderful world of reuse and repurposing, so I hope my contributions to the blog will be interesting to seasoned crafters, as well as useful for newbies like me!

Sarah - Volunteer:

Hi there! My name is Sarah and I dabble in jewelry making and sewing. I am always looking at objects with an eye for how they could be re-purposed or made into something new.

Siao - Volunteer:

Hi, I'm Siao! I love planning and crafting my little daydreams to reality. After learning about the reuse centre, it has spurred on a lot of mini-projects. It's really encouraging to think you are giving worn objects a second life. So, let's get creative!

Tamara - Volunteer:

Hello! I'm Tamara, and I love this beautiful world we live in. I've always taken a keen interest in environment-friendly initiatives, and when I found out about the Reuse Centre I loved the concept. I'm excited to learn lots as a volunteer blogger, and even more excited to try out new things and share cool re-use ideas with you!

Ellen - Volunteer:

As someone passionate about sustainability in this world, I'm thrilled to contribute to the Reuse Centre's blog. I'm Ellen, a stay-at-home mom with two little ones who love to play. I hope I can show my kids how to live with passion and appreciation for our earth and teach them how to find wonder in our world and treasures in our trash!

  1. This is an awesome concept. I wish other communities could have a similar centre. I live in Sherwood Park and would love to have access to a Reuse Centre like this.
